15 When you (A)spread out your hands,
    I will hide my eyes from you;
(B)even though you make many prayers,
    I will not listen;
    (C)your hands are full of blood.
16 (D)Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean;
    remove the evil of your deeds from before my eyes;
(E)cease to do evil,
17     learn to do good;
(F)seek justice,
    correct oppression;
(G)bring justice to the fatherless,
    plead the widow's cause.

18 “Come now, (H)let us reason[a] together, says the Lord:
though your sins are like scarlet,
    they shall be as (I)white as snow;
though they are red like crimson,
    they shall become like wool.
